Corfu is an intriguing island on the west side of Greece. Sharing a climate with the Italians, but a culture with the Greeks, Corfu has a unique atmosphere that combines humid green landscapes, luscious forests and golden beaches with backgammon, ouzo and a slow-paced lifestyle.
The island of Corfu is one of the most loved in Greece, possibly because it really is one of a kind. Situated so close to Italy that it shares a climate with them, many Greeks joke that it isn't really a Hellenic island at all. However, the culture is true to its homeland with the same laid-back attitude, strong sense of hospitality and incredible culinary traditions.
Historical Corfu has quite a story behind it. Once occupied by the Venetians, the fortified capital city withstood three Ottoman Empire sieges, and throughout the island the pride in their regional heritage is clear. If you're visiting Corfu you'll see all sorts of beautiful chapels, castles and ruins on your way between beaches and pools, cities and villages.
